Item Description...
Overview
Jesus' death and resurrection are undeniably central to the Christian faith. But how, precisely, is their significance to be understood? Concerned to reinvigorate the church's teaching on the cross, the resurrection, and salvation - the atonement - Peter Schmiechen here invites readers to rediscover the wealth of the Christian tradition. In Saving Power he makes ample use of primary sources to unpack ten distinct theories of atonement, welcoming aspects of each rather than championing only one. Along the way, he demonstrates that while most Christians assume the basic theme of atonement to be sin and forgiveness, other powerful themes - liberation from oppressive powers, reconciliation in the face of division, and the hope of resurrection in the face of death, for instance - also deserve to be studied and preached. Affirming orthodox teaching while offering a positive take on marginal views, Saving Power is a crucial resource for anyone who seeks a fuller understanding of Christ's work.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Well done  Aug 3, 2009
Peter Schiechen does an amazing job in this book to outline 10 different atonement theories. He gives and outline and overview of each theory as well as addresses each of the different theories pro's and con's. In my opinion he does not seem to favor one theory over another, but seeks to write about the rich contribution that each theory brings to the study of the atonement. He highlighted many facts and aspects of the atonement I had never thought of before, even after 4 years at bible college. Overall I enjoyed this book greatly, and would recommend this to any one looking for a detailed yet concise book on atonement theories.
